Differential diagnoses of osteonecrosis of large joints.

[Differential diagnoses of osteonecrosis of large joints]. Radiologe. 2019 Jul 17;: Authors: Grieser T Abstract Subchondral insufficiency fractures and idiopathic bone marrow edema syndrome are the most important differential diagnoses to be distinguished from osteonecrosis because they have a deviating and as a rule more favorable prognosis and also different therapeutic strategies. Osteochondritis dissecans represents a different entity in many respects, which should not be confused or unified with osteonecrosis. Based on recent knowledge intractable subchondral insufficiency fractures may be the underlying cause of rapidly destructive osteoarthritis at least in some cases. Septic involvement of bone and joints can eo ipso cause severe articular damage due to direct destruction but also secondary to septic vascular occlusion resulting in septic osteonecrosis. Whereas bone marrow infiltrating systemic diseases and the therapeutic regimens can lead to osteonecrosis, bone tumors or tumor-like diseases, rarely pose a differential diagnostic problem with respect to the differentiation from osteonecrosis.

Publication date: Available online 16 November 2019Source: Orthopaedics &Traumatology: Surgery &ResearchAuthor(s): Christophe Mathoulin, Mathilde GrasAbstractScapholunate ligament tear is most frequently encountered in the aftermath of trauma in supination and extension of the wrist. It generates chronic instability, leading to osteoarthritis. It may be associated with fracture of the distal epiphysis of the radius or of the scaphoid. These lesions are often difficult to diagnose, especially in early stages. Treatment of chronic scapholunate ligament lesions before onset of osteoarthritis is a challenge for the sur...

AbstractPurposeThe purpose of this study was to assess whether unicompartmental knee arthroplasty (UKA) results in better patient-reported and clinical outcome than total knee arthroplasty (TKA). The study hypothesis was UKA yields better patient-reported and clinical outcomes than TKA.MethodsOur prospective cohort study compared patients who underwent medial UKA or TKA from February 2014 through June 2015. Forgotten Joint Score (FJS), the short form of the Knee Injury and Osteoarthritis Outcome Score (KOOS PS), EuroQOL Five Dimensions Questionnaire (EQ-5D), and the Knee Society Score (KSS) were completed at two weeks, six...

ConclusionsAccording to the currently available data, PRP injections are beneficial for pain relief and function improvement in patients with OA. This metaanalysis, however, demonstrated that the efficacy of PRP is related to sample size and gender composition. Thus, more randomised controlled trials of high quality and larger patient size, also including gender aspects, are required to understand this phenomenon.
